Hi-tech lifestyle in Dubai @ iPad tower

ipad tower
The 23 storey iPad, one among the most famous buildings now under construction, was designed by James Law, the Chairman of James Law Cybertecture.

James Law, on his return journey from Dubai to Hong Kong, planned this design, as he was on the look out for a new building at Business Bay in Dubai. Law, hit upon the idea of combining cybertecture with something new in the field of technology. On looking at the iPod, which he was listening to at the moment, he felt it represents the way of life in future.

Cybertecture, is an architecture that is not only about stone, glass and steel but also involves interactivity, digital content and use of technology.

iPad, the building under-construction, is developed by Omniyat, and is situated along the Creek in Business Bay providing views of Burj Dubai. It includes iAmbience rooms that changes color while receiving phone calls and iRotation rooms which provides its residents with changes in views. Other features included are the iHealth for the bathrooms that detects the blood pressure, weight and temperature of the individual using it, and the iReality rooms that feature real-time videos of about sixty two locations all around the world.

On the whole, the project will have a total of 231 apartments, with Dh.1 million for a studio apartment. The views will be stunning, along with interchangeable interiors. The motto of ‘live in the future’ will be indicated in all the products of iPad.

iPad, which is already in the process of building, is being scheduled for completion by 2010.
